C.J. Spiller becomes available since his designation to return from the Injured Reserve list.  This is the week he is eligible.  Does he come back? Is he the piece that might be missing at this point to put the Buffalo Bills over the edge for the last two weeks.  The added measure?

Either way or whatever it is, the Buffalo Bills have to begin to look at Oakland.  Oakland has surprised some teams this year, so the Bills need to be on their game.  A loss to either Oakland or to New England will leave the Bills looking in from the outside on the playoff race.

The possible scenarios are ridiculous for the Buffalo Bills at this point and there is no way that they control their own destiny except for the fact that they have to win the last two games.  Win or go home, basically.

Here are three possible scenarios that the Buffalo news played out that do not include tie breakers, but if the scenarios play out then the Bills still finish with better records than the teams that we would lose with tie breakers anyway.  Check it out below.

"Obviously the most likely path to the playoffs for the Bills would have them winning their final two games to go to 10-6.One positively-spun possible path to the playoffs for a 10-6 Bills team:Pittsburgh wins its last two to win the AFC North at 11-5;Cincinnati loses its last two to finish 9-6-1;Baltimore loses its last two to finish 9-7;Kansas City loses its last two to finish 8-8San Diego goes 1-1 in its last two to finish 9-7, leaving Cincinnati & Buffalo as the two wild cards.—Another path is similar to the one above:Same scenario as above (Pit wins last two, Cin loses last two, Balt loses last two, KC loses last two)San Diego goes 2-0 in its last two to finish 10-6, leaving San Diego and Buffalo as the two wild cards—Another scenario in which Bills fans would be rooting for Pittsburgh and against Cincinnati:Pittsburgh wins its last two to win the AFC North at 11-5;Cincinnati loses its last two to finish 9-6-1;Kansas City loses its last two to finish 8-8San Diego goes 1-1 in its last two to finish 9-7Baltimore goes 1-1 in its last two to finish 10-6, leaving Baltimore & Buffalo as the two wild cards.—A possibility to the other extreme — Cincinnati finishes strong while Pittsburgh falters:Cincinnati wins its last two to win the AFC North at 11-4-1;Pittsburgh loses its last two to finish 9-7;Kansas City goes 1-1 (beating Pittsburgh, losing to San Diego) in its last two to finish 9-7San Diego goes 1-1 (losing to San Francisco, beating Kansas City) in its last two to finish 9-7Baltimore goes 1-1 in its last two to finish 10-6, leaving Baltimore & Buffalo as the two wild cards.– Buffalo News"
